Bloggers Challenge - Fabulous Florals

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Sympathy Challenge last week.  This week's challenge is Fabulous Florals.

Inspired by the Color Challenge on The Card Concept Challenge Blog my Classy and Elegant card features stamps and Custom Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs to also fit my Bloggers Challenge Fabulous Floral Theme.

The White panel is embossed with an embossing folder, then I used a SAMJ to stamp the Verse from the Zinnia stamp set in Espresso.  The floral images are from the Zinnia stamp set, stamped in Espresso on White card stock, then die cut using the ODBD Custom Zinnia and Leaves Die.  The leaves are die cut/embossed from Green card stock using the same die.  To further embellish I added Green embossed flourish die cuts using the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Die along with some Zva Creative Silver Crystal Flourishes.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Zinnia
Card Stock - White, Espresso, Green
Ink - Espresso
Other - Brad, Dimensionals, Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Glue Dots, ODBD Custom Zinnia and Leaves Die, ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Die, Zva Creative Crystal Flourishes, SAMJ

This is so pretty, Lisa! Love how the embossing frames the sentiment and the pretty pearl at the center of the flower.
